ST. PAUL GETTING USED TO BIG GAMES

It's just another week for the St. Paul football team.

With 11 Firelands Conference championships, 13 playoff appearances, three state runner-up trophies and a state championship over the past 15 years, playing in big games has become a way of life at St. Paul.

"This is what you play for, we love games like this," St. Paul coach John Livengood said. "I think all of us have been excited for this week. As soon as we hit Saturday morning, we were ready to get going with Western Reserve.

"The kids are excited, it's a big game atmosphere and it's why you play sports ... to be involved in these type of games."

But Friday's matchup against the unbeaten Roughriders, ranked No. 7 in the Division V AP poll, is going to be a new experience for many of the Flyers after returning just six starters total on both sides of the ball entering the season.

WESTERN RESERVE LOOKS FOR SEVENTH STRAIGHT WIN

Firelands Conference title and playoff points are on the line when Western Reserve hosts St. Paul Friday in a Week 7 conference battle.

The Roughriders enter the game at 6-0 overall, 4-0 in the FC, ranked seventh in the state in Division V and first in the Division V, Region 18 computer ratings. The Flyers are 5-1, 4-0 and sixth in Division VI, Region 21.

"It's not too far down the road,'' Western coach Mike Stoll said. "I think it's been a good rivalry. With St. Paul winning the state last year, it's good for our area and good for our conference.

"St. Paul raised the bar, it's a challenge for the rest of us."

The Roughriders have brought excitement for their fans with the 6-0 start.
